, the takers versus the makers as paul ryan said. >> he misspoke on that. >> he spent 17 days doubling down, defending that remark. suddenly when he realized poll numbers were tanking, he comes out on fox news and says i didn't really mean that. >> the rasmussen polls out today show that mitt romney has a nice bounce from that debate. >> three states. hang on a second. but jedadai, mitt romney said he was wrong on the 47%. i think that was pretty good of him to say that. show as ls a lot of character. has president obama said he was wrong when he made the statement that he was wrong when he said you didn't start that business? i don't think i heard him take that back. >> the reason he couldn't have to do that is the media doesn't hold barack obama accountable. the media only holds republicans accountable when they make mistakes and misspeak. mitt romney did have character in saying that. he wanted to make sure those 47% of americans, some of whom don't pay federal income taxes but are supporting governor romney and don't support a message of big government -- >> the reason why he didn't say
romney's proposed with paul ryan an ambitious reformation of the program that would go to voucher, but he hasn't said what the level of the voucher would be or the growth rate in the voucher. if you don't specify that, you can't specify what your savings will be or the impact on consumers. and finally president obama last year in the grand bargain talks with house speaker boehner talked about more ambitious proposals than medicare than he's advocated so far like raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67. hasn't said a word about that in the election campaign so far. you can expect the two to clash on that issue, as well. >> john, i know you've looked at some poll numbers from the journal and nbc news. maybe a slight tightening on a national level. but certainly in some important states like ohio, the president continues to lead. i know you've said the romney strategists believe they need ohio. if it's mathematically possible to win without it, why do they still believe they need it? >> well, because if you don't win ohio, you're probably not going to win, say, wisconsin, which is another
thing that would worry me is if i really believed that romney and ryan were going to get elected and they were going to come in and dramatically cut government spending, that would lead to a recession, and that would worry me. but i don't think they're going to get elected, but more importantly, i don't think they would do that if they did get elected. nears no republican that ever has. i think ceos are focused on what the consumer is doing, what are their customers doing. and as jim cramer said a little earlier, i think between 23 and 27 minutes of the world's focus was on this last night. the people have moved on to more substantive topics now. >> so the bottom line is that it does not matter for a domestic business who gets elected? when it comes to the fundamental -- >> i think it does matter, but i think it matters because i think barack obama is the person who is most likely to be able to continue growing the economy. and the things that romney has proposed are unlikely to be successful. but i don't think ceos react to something like a debate. you know, they're looking at t
next week against ryan. that should be good, don't you think? >> i do. >> steve see you back in a bit? >> we'll talk about draghi at 8:30 and jobless claims. >>> right now breaking news, julia boorstin has more on what's happening with facebook. >> that's right, the facebook announcing it has 1 billion monthly active users and 600 million mobile users, mark zuckerberg saying, making this announcement saying "i'm committed to working each day to make facebook better for you and hopefully one day we'll be able to connect the rest of the world." this is a major milestone for the company. facebook hit 500 million active users, doubling its size in two years. mark zuckerberg taped an interview with matt lauer airing exclusively on the "today" show shortly, that sitdown his first since the ipo coming up later this afternoon. >> yesterday afternoon i saw a headline, facebook is going to charge you $7 if you want to send posts, headlines to your friends. sounded crazy. >> facebook is testing all sorts of different ad models and facebook gives you the option of paying to promote your post to y
